You want your sim to work as bartender, barista or D.J. while visiting a community lot ?
But you are annoyed because your sim interrupts his task as soon as a random visitor attempts to interact with him ?

This is a bug that came out with OFB, and affects community lot's workers who are not NPC or business owners/employees.
So, I tried to fix this issue. Sims will now focus on their task and only stop their job as it was intended in previous expansion packs (Uni & NL) : when their motives are too low, or if you tell them to stop, etc.

This is my first upload, I tried to test it extensively but I'd be glad to receive feedback from other testers as well.

This mod requires OFB or later expansion pack, as there was no such bug prior to OFB and it was never fixed in later packs.
You can use this mod even if you don't have the packs that allow you to work as barista (Uni, AL) or disk jockey (NL, FT). In any case the mod will at least fix the bartender.
This is a global mod, it doesn't modify any object, only sim's behaviour at work.

Conflicts :
This fix might conflict with mods that are modifying the way a sim decide to stop his job.
If you have a doubt, you can check with Paladin's HCDU (Hack Conflict Detection Utility).

Policy :
Please don't upload this mod on other websites. Provide a link to this thread instead.
You can include or modify this fix in one of your own mods, as long as you give proper credits and a link to this page.
